^ Did anyone ever think it wouldn't? Huge book sales, very small budget requirements? It's the most obvious green-light project ever.

Question is will Hollywood insist it's a PG-13

Re: 50 Shades Of Grey phenomenon? Mommy porn outsells Potter and Twili

I read it last year, and it's a fairly 'PG-13' book anyway. Unless you find reading about a blowjob particularly "shocking."

I didn't bother with books 2 or 3, so I can't comment on what happens in those, but I don't understand the big deal about what occurs in it. There's one chapter where she's reading his guide to BDSM and she reads things like "anal beads" and "fisting" etc, and she goes "oh gosh." But none of that stuff ever actually happens. It's all just awfully written straight forward male-female sex. The rest was so boring I can hardly remember, I think there was some spanking at some point. oooh spanking! How shocking to read! Yeah maybe if you grew up in the 40s and 50s

I am unfortunate enough to have read the first one. Dreadful, it is too. I still can't believe it's being made into a film.

I got the book cheap just to see what all the fuss was about. I haven't read the second or third books, so I can't comment on them, but as for the first, unless you find a blowjob to be particularly shocking I don't really get what the big deal is.
The primary appeal of the book seems to lie in the psychological implications of bdsm, not in pushing the limits of sex acts for their own sake. It's a case of, forgive me, "more than meets the eye."
Read the Article, interesting...but says nothing new...Alot of Woman do want to be overpowered, but safely. It's why women flock to bad boys and douchebags, in the hopes that they'll be the "bad boy" to everyone else, but desire them and only them. Nice guys don't generate that excitement.

Charlie Hunnam drops out of "50 Shades of Grey"

He must have finally read the book.

Judging from the dull trailer, I doubt I will be visiting this story on the cinematic form either.
Seems like something that has been done before already, many times. Well, I do hope the lovers of the book will enjoy it at least

I wouldn't be surprised if this is massive, maybe into the Top 10 or 20 all time box office.

Just because every woman is gonna want to see it, and every man with a wife or girlfriend will take them... because if there's one movie to go see that's gonna guarantee you getting laid afterwards, it's gonna be this one




I will say that Jamie Dornan looks a lot more like how I imagined the character than Charlie Hunnam does, I don't know why they ever cast him tbh.
Dakota Johnson too I suppose, maybe just a bit younger.
